What Do Math People Do? redux
I wrote recently about a student who asked me what people do with a maths education. Today I came across a nice interview that John D. Cook did with Robert Ghrist. "Robert is a professor of mathematics and electrical engineering. He describes his research as applied topology,.." It just sounds like the kind of interview a student wondering about math might want to read.... twice.
Come on.. how can you resist a title like "Applied topology and Dante".
